Workers are an essential piece of the VideoCoin Network.

When a video stream is sent to the end-user, that video must be transcoded. This is the compute-heavy processing of raw data executed by our VideoCoin Network Workers. Workers do the heavy lifting and offer the customer an efficient and cost-effective way to transcode videos. These Workers act in a decentralized infrastructure so that videos can be delivered on a global scale to anyone and anywhere.

As the VideoCoin Network continues to expand the need for Workers will continue to grow. This leads to a question: “How do we scale the number of Workers so that data centers or third-party computers can join the VideoCoin Network in the efforts to process video for the world?”

In response, we are introducing the alpha version of the VideoCoin Network Worker Hub.

The Worker Hub is a revolutionary way for anyone to work on the VideoCoin Network. It greatly improves the setup process for new Workers to participate, almost no technical expertise is needed to get started. Simply put, if you can fill out an online form, you can set up a Worker. The VideoCoin Network Worker Hub is built with a ‘user-first experience’ approach similar to our Staking App. The VideoCoin Network development team has been working closely with the worker community to develop a refined process to onboard new Workers and improve the onboarding experience.
